Rigg has the power to change the past. But nothing can prepare him for the future...
The adventure, suspense, and time travel continue in this second installment in the critically acclaimed New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestselling Pathfinder series. (Goodreads)
 As much as I disliked pathfinder, I actually rather enjoyed ruins. To me, the struggle to get through pathfinder seemingly was in order to introduce ruins. The world building and theory building was mainly to allow ruins to flow freely, which it did. I finally began to grasp exactly how the time travel aspects worked, and that meant I was able to engage with the characters and this made the novel rather enjoyable. The uniqueness of the said world, and the characters involved make this series an interesting one, and given the ending to this book, I will be picking up the third when it comes out.
4/5 Carls
